I didn’t go. Why didn’t somebody remind me? There’s a movement afoot, and I want to be a part of it. Ughh! I would have loved to have been there.
KSHB Action News says there were about 100 protesters. I heard from someone who was there, that one of the organizers announced a crowd of 750 at the peak, at about 10:30. It looks like a whole lot more than 100.
Rantings and Ravings was there and posted pictures. Here are a couple:
Looks like they had a decent showing. Next time somebody had better remind me, dangit.
More pictures from John, an Ace Of Spades moron who was there:
Someone is quite the artiste:
Love this: “Get your paws off the economy, you damn, dirty, Dems”!
I see there was a Michael Savage fan in the crowd:
John says another protest is planned for next Saturday, starting at J.C. Nichols Fountain on the Plaza at 10:00 a.m., then marching on to Senator McCaskill’s office.
MORE at Kansas Meadowlark.
STILL MORE at Katablog, who has a slideshow.
I’m not a good crowd estimator but I’d guess there where between 200 and 300 500 to 750 people who turned out in 25 degree weather to make their voices heard. In addition we had a lot of passing traffic who provided their support with thumbs up and honking.
She’s right. There were way more than 100 people at this thing:
How about it Obama? Kid wants a tiger. What could go wrong?
Senator DeMint is encouraging street demonstrations to save our country:
The stately senator from South Carolina sees America’s unique centuries-old system of freedom dying out.
And he thinks we may have to take to the streets to save it.
“I would think it’s time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations,” he told us last week.
“The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people’s hands right now, and it’s about to slip through.”
Next Saturday’s event:
